Copper roof - Byron Bay The large copper roof positioned just under the lighthouse at Byron bay was installed using a double standing roof system installed on plywood. 200mm diameter copper gutters were fitted onto the copper fascia cladding, and the soffit cladding was 600mm module V25 cassette panels. The walls were clad using a copper ship lap system similar to that used with timber cladding, leaving a very nautical feel.
Once I had the surface fully burnt, I laid them down, clipped the wire and extinguished the fire. I had to use a blow torch to touch up the areas along the edge that didn’t get charred. I have seen some people use a roofer’s torch to blacken the surface, then brush off the soot and apply Penofin, but I wanted the full charcoal layer.
